Alias Posts Maya 5 Booster PackBonus package includes new plugins, scripts and UI enhancements
The Booster Pack is a collection of more than 100 mini-features for Maya 5. Alias says that among the new tools included in the pack are improved Trax workflow with clip trimming and easier access to characters and weight curves; enhanced polygonal texture mapping, enabling the user to unfold and layout UVs for multiple objects into the same UV space without overlapping and warping images with different UV sets; enhanced polygonal modeling, with a function to copy tweaks between similar meshes; the ability to delete construction history while maintaining the skinning of the model; and a total of 10 procedural shaders. It also includes bug fixes. Examples of the new features are available on the ALias community Web site.
The Bonus Tools Booster Pack is available now for Mac OS X, Windows, Linux and Irix for Maya Complete and Unlimited 5.0 and 5.0.1. For more information or to download the software, visit http://www.alias.com/eng/community/downloads/bonus_tools/index.jhtml.
